We Ship Some of the Most Valued Artwork
Shipping expensive art both internationally and domestically requires proper handling and packaging to ensure the artwork arrives in the same condition as it left. It is important to work with a logistics provider that has experience in handling art and can provide the necessary climate-controlled transportation, insurance and customs clearance.
Mercury helps museums and galleries with shipping high-value fine art domestically and internationally. We have shipped everything from Norman Rockwell paintings sent to France for the Caen Memorial for the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings to Rembrandt paintings and Galileo’s original telescope.
Guided by our core value of ownership, our expert team provides the same individual attention, high-level monitoring, focus on detail, and follow-through that ensures a precious painting is delivered to a museum.
Whether your shipment goes on a climate-controlled truck with real-time GPS tracking or on a flight with tarmac security and attendants on board, our team constantly monitors your shipments so you don't have to.
We help prepare the international customs documentation such as AES filings.
We will advise on the appropriate packaging materials and methods to use to protect the artwork during transit.
